Real SoMd Wedding: Shimmer and Elegance on the Pier

When Chantal and Howard decided to marry at National Harbor, they used their surroundings as inspiration. They choose navy blue, ivory, and gold as the colors for the classic, beautiful wedding of their dreams. They married on May 27, 2011, on the Pier at National Harbor, overlooking the Potomac River, and they celebrated with their family and friends at the Sunset Room. Tall vases with floating candles and flowers decorated the center of each table, and blue light bathed the room. Sparkling beads hung from the ceiling for an extra glow. The couple surprised their guests with a first dance foxtrot to “The Way You Look Tonight” by Maroon 5. Chantal said the crowd went crazy!
